“GREAT FOR UNIVERSAL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014

Booked it for one night as the room includes fast passes for two days which are really expensive to buy and you are allowed in to the parks on both days 1 hour before the general public, which helps with the popular Harry Potter rides which you cant fast pass. Breakfast included which is great. Nice pool to relax in. 10 minute walk to park or 3 minures to free water taxi then a 3 minute walk

Attractive property located within easy walking distance of City Walk and Universal parks. Our room was on the ground floor in tower 2, with a large fixed window providing an expansive view of the tree border and the grassy dog park area beyond: we enjoyed watching the dogs play. The wi-fi is seriously bad. Do not expect to get any use out of it. Daughter with ipad mini was not pleased.

The room lacks sufficient ventilation, and a mildew smell spread when the air was cooling. I often travel with a scented candle for this reason when I visit hotels in FL. The bathroom lacks ventilation too, and features dated tiles in the bath/shower. The towels were thick, and the hotel-supplied shampoo, etc., were larger sizes than usual.

We appreciated the Keurig coffee maker, but ran out of cups daily (housekeeping supplied 2 disposable cups). Bring your own mug!! We enjoyed the pool, although I think staff could be more proactive in cleaning up dishes from the poolside restaurant, as well as piles of wet towels strewn around by thoughtless guests.

The pleasant walk to Universal can become a quick ride on a pedicab (they convey visitors for tips) or by boat (free). We absolutely LOVED this easy access to the parks. We stayed 4 nights and never used our car. The tropical theme is not very deep (compared to Disney) but, all in all, a great location for a good price and a pleasant experience. We will stay again if we get a deal.

When Loews says "Loews Loves Pets", they really mean it. We have stayed at this property ever since they opened and have nothing but great things to say. Good food, very accommodating and beautiful property. Our 2 dogs are always welcome and look forward to going back.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

Green Features: As with most upscale properties, Loews is doing their part for the environment.

The previous year we stayed in the Waldorf Astoria but I have to say I liked this one more. Yes the decor is dated but I loved the touches like film night and the morning breakfast cafe so you could grab a coffee and go. Also its so close to Universal and the priority passes are fantastic worth staying here for that alone. I would definitely stay here again!

Pets are allowed and there is a certain area designated for them to walk and play. Be careful of others who don't like to clean up after their dogs. The grass is a bit high and you cannot see everything!

Family vacation to Universal Studios, stayed at Royal Pacific Resort. You arrive and walk down the covered walkway overlooking beautiful gardens to the Check-in area. Orchids everywhere you look. Fresh ice cold fruit punch in the lobby every afternoon to help you cool down. From check in to check out everyone was friendly, cordial and very helpful. Pool was large, clean with a nightly film shown at dusk. All family friendly. Ate at Jakes American Bar & Grill, islands Dining Room and the pool bar. All the food was fresh and did not skimp on the portions. Will definetely stay here again. Also checked out their sister property Portafino's. That looks good also. Both close to Universal Studios, can walk or take the free water shuttle.

Room Tip: We stayed in Tower 1, 6th floor owner looking the gardens. Quiet and soothing

Green Features: Liked the practice of if you wanted, hang your towels up and they stay. Throw them on the floor and they will be replaced.
